[Mailman-Users] Attachment problems

Take a look in the management console in the content filtering options.
Check out the pass types. You could add some attachment types (mine are as
below) to allow excel files through. Don't know exactly what you would need
to put, but any good html documentation would be able to tell you what the
attachment type is for an excel spreadsheet.


This is an idea, dunno if it will work. Please note that the pass types that
are NOT listed are scrubbed.

Subject: [Mailman-Users] Attachment problems

Mailman is the default mailing list application offered by my web hosting
company through its web-based control panel interface.

I created a mailing list but we have been experiencing problems with
Whenever an email message with an attachment is sent to the mailing list,
the email message gets through to all recipients but the attachment (whether
a Word document, image, PDF or Excel file etc) will always be scrubbed and
shows up as a unopenable .dat file. The attachment is also scrubbed at the
list archives so there's no way list members can view the attachment. 

Does anyone have any advice how to get around this problem, so that
can pass through successfully in the original message to all recipients?

I have the content filtering option set to "No", and have not placed any
limits on message size.
